Types of Bonds
Ionic Bond-Chemical bonding that results from the electrical attraction between anions and cations
Characteristics-ionization to form complete outer shells,energy lowering process by electron exchange,produces two oppositely charged ions,soluble in water,in solid state does conduct electricity,liquid state it will.
Metallic Bond-attraction between metal atoms and the surrounding sea of electrons.
Characteristics:malleable,thermal and electrical conductor,ductile,opacity.
Covalent Bond-Sharing of electron pairs between two atoms
Characteristics:low melting point,low boiling point,state at room temp is liquid or gaseous.
